Airfix Magazine


We were delighted to see in the June 2014 Issue 43 of Airfix Model World magazine that one of our best-selling models, the Pegasus Hobbies Nautilus has been treated to an outstanding 'Advanced Build' review.

In fact 7 pages of gorgeous photos and inspiring instruction of this beautiful piece of Victorian-era science fiction.

Other features include builds of the Lynx HAS.3 ICE helicopter, L-39 Albatros plane and C-47 Skytrain.

Another piece that caught our eye was a Normandy landings diorama featuring an exclusive build of Airfix's new 1:72 scale Willys Jeep and LCVP landing craft. We were impressed by the instruction for using balsa wood and cork matting to build the beach setting, and Deluxe Materials products 'Making Waves' and 'Solid Water' to produce lifelike sea that the landing craft is emerging from. Simply a brilliant tutorial that modellers will surely be inspired by . Its also accompanied by an enjoyable and informative historical feature on the D-Day landings featuring dramatic photos of the day.
